Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was an absolute blast! Saturday I went up to my mom’s to visit and had an amazing day! My mom, her boyfriend and I went apple picking, then did a little clothes shopping and THEN hit up the most amazing grocery store I have ever been too! Wegmans? Has anyone heard of this place?! It was like the Mall Of America in food!!! Holy COW!!! I was like a kid in a candy shop! I picked up lots of goodies that I will be sharing with you soon! God bless my mom’s boyfriend for not complaining one time about the 45 minute TJMaxx stop or the 90 minute Wegman’s trip!

Sunday I spent the day in the kitchen whipping up lots of yummy recipes for you! Get ready!! 🙂 Before we jump into today’s recipe I just wanted to share a couple pictures from our apple picking adventures! Have to give a little shout out to my mom! She’s crazy….and I love her tons!

*What was the last fun family adventure you had?

  • I went apple picking this weekend too! Thoughts on subbing apples into this recipe for the peaches since that's all I have on hand??? I need to try this!

    This is a must try! It can be use in so many ways. Have not gone apple picking yet. Honey Crisp are hands-down my favorite! Love the pic's of you and your mom.

  • Your apple picking adventure brings back Fall memories in my grandfather's orchard. There were several apple trees, several varieties, cooking and eating. But my very favorite was the Jonathan tree. HUGE luscious deeply dark red apples that fairly glowed when buffed with your breath and shirttail. I'm convinced I'll never find another apple that even approaches the incredible flavor, and believe me, I've tried. Just out of curiosity, I noticed you use a microwave routinely in food prep. I've read that microwaving food creates free radicals when the waves excite and break apart the water molecules in food (how it generates heat). We have a microwave, but only because my wife won't let me get rid of it. Ha! This recipe could easily be done in a saucepan on the stove. I know that a big focus of yours is whole foods for healthiness. Thoughts?

    I miss apple picking! Too hot for (good) apples here in Houston. Such a fun fall activity. But we do still have peaches! I think that's a sign that we need to make this ;).

    Sarah, This is awesome! I've made it twice. I spread it on chicken (yum!) and brought it to the office to let co-workers try it on bagels. They liked it (and they are usually reluctant to try the "clean" foods I bring to share). I might try it with Honey Crisp apples next time. Thanks for the recipe.
